A cell phone company’s profit is modeled by the function p(x) = 10x − x2 − 1, where p is expressed in thousands of dollars and x is the number of phones sold in hundreds. How many phones must the company sell to make a profit of more than \$15,000?

P(x) = 10x - x^2 - 1 = 15.
-x^2 + 10x - 1 - 15 = 0.
-x^2 + 10x - 16 = 0.
Solve using Quadratic Formula and get:
X = 2 = 200 Phones.
X = 8 = 800 Phnes.
